Runt Higgins needs answers, fast. Someone cursed him to die on his sixteenth birthday— but no one seems to know who cursed him or why. He decides he must find the Great Library, where all true knowledge is stored. Unfortunately, the only people who know the location of the Great Library are a covert network of librarian-spies who have sworn to protect the Library’s secrets. And when one of Runt’s professors is attacked, it soon becomes clear that others are also out to find the Library at any cost. Meanwhile, Runt’s not the only one whose days are numbered. To save the floundering school from an inevitable sale, Dr. Critchlore takes some desperate measures. His master plan to save the school? A fashion show.


Praise

"Another smart, funny romp featuring a notably diverse cast headed by a minion who's looking more and more like a hero."
Kirkus
"The fast-paced action and monstrous cast, a hallmark of the series opener, continues in the follow-up, and fans of the series will be eager to find out what happens to Runt."
Booklist
“This continues to be a strongly diverse (even though we’re talking magical creatures, there’s a nice mix of cultures, skin tones, and personality types represented), clever, and high quality series that stands out amid the deluge of middle-school books about monsters. Clever chapter headings quoting minion and overlord philosophy and elegant illustrations don’t impact the central plot but add effective additional flavor notes. A school map provides a handy reference.”
BCCB
"If your readers like The Wizard of Oz or the Harry Potter series, then they will enjoy this book."
